In regard to signing the resolution, the
Governor says he gave Judge David B. Har

TUB MARIETTA HOAD IN TROUBLE.
A Receiver Askeit For—Tlint Gift by the
State of two,000.
Atlanta, December fi.—On Wednesday
last, nt Marietta, Judgo Fain granted a tem
porary injunction until December 22,
against the management of the Marietta and
North Georgia railroad. The bill asking
tho injunction, also oaks for a receiver to
be appointed. It woa filed by a number of
the old stockholders.
Tbe leading point in the bill is the charge
that Kinney A Eger made a contract for the
completion of the rood, their compensation
to bo in stock, and that after
working awhile nnder this contract
they obtained stock enough to con
trol the corporation, and that then a
hoard of directors friendly to Kinney A
Eger released Kinney A Eger, and made n
now contact “itu Eger, by which he woa to
receive bonds instead of stock tor the com
pletion of the road.
The defense is ihet th* original contract
with Kinuoy A Eger was not to complete
the load, but to work upon it for lire
months, and that the contract on its fsoo
declares that it is aimply a temporary con
tract, and the second contract, nnder which
Eger is working, was approved by the board
of directors and approved at a meeting of
the storkholdere, at which most of these
stockholders wero present, nnd nearly all
of the stock was voted in tavor of the con
It will be remembered that the State had
a claim against this road for abont $80,000,
including interest, and that at the last Isrgis-
latnre a bill woaiiassed remitting the State's
entire claim. Jtnlge David B. Harrell, of
Webster, fought the bilL When it passed
he notified the Governor that he should
like to bo heard on the unconstitutionaUty
of the bill; but his Excellency signed the
bill, it ia said, th* very night after its
pannage, and notification of bis sclion sent
to the Honso the next morning. Subse
quently Judge Harrell introduced a bill re
pealing the former bill, but the repeal bill
failed to pans. It was understood that the
North Georgia members, or some of them,
lud joined forces with the railroad men who
wero trying to abolish or amend the Rail
road Commission law, and that by that com
bination the hill remitting the $80,090
was passed. It was reported that there was

Atlanta, December 7.—Mr. L. B. Henry,
who filled the position of telegmph oper
ator, poatmaater and agent of the Georgia
Pacific road at Chattahoochee, waa arrested
by Sheriff Perkenon to-day for shortage.
Yeaterday Henry wrote Manager Bage that
he waa about $1,000 behind. Mr. Bage and
tihoriff Perketnou went oat to-day on an
engiue and examined his hooka. Henry
waa found to bo about $1,200 short. He
turned over $3B0 eaoh on hand of the road’a
money to Mr. Bage. He was brought in
town and token before Justice Tanner
this afternoon charged with larce
ny after troit. lie waived preliminary ex
amination, and iu default of a $£,000 Loud
was placed in jail.
Henry's statement is peculiar. He says
that he farniahed the missing money
from time to time to a dear friend
of hla who has a family to sup
port to aid him iu making up
a heavy shortage which he himself owed the
Georgia Pacific. Ills friend he says is
not in a condition to help him out of
his present trouble. He saysj too, that he
would serve for life in the peniten
tiary before he wonld expose the name of
his needy friend who was behind like him
self. Henry states, too, that he could give
bond, bnt will not jeapordize his friend by
so doing. He oaks to bo allowed to plead
Ruilty to-morrow to appropriating the
funds of the rood. He says that he has
no defense. He is a good-looking, intelli
gent, single man, about twenty-four years
old, and has a mother and sister living in

Drift of tire Temperance Movement.
The Chicago University says tho mis
named “temperance" movement in America
is passing through an important stage of
evolvtion by which the wise among temper
ance workers are to be separated from tbe
unwise, the practical from the impractical,
tlio disinterested from tbe demagogical.
The latest step in this direction, our con
temporary continues, U the action of the
“Woman's Christian Temperance Union” at
its recent meeting in l'hiladelpbki, by
which, with overwhelming majorities, the
“union" denounced all forma of license or
taxation of intoxicating liquors, indorsed the
“third party movement (in politics and de
clared itself in favor ot female suffrage. A
protest was presented by the more judicious
delegates, baaed on the grounds that the ac
tion would change the character of the or
ganization by making it political instead of
moral, and that it would convert its national
organ into ■ partisan sheet. The resolu
tions, however, were carried with a ni-h.
“We marvel greatly," says the University,
“that while they were in the brnduvsi tliia
